NME have announced a limited edition print magazine to celebrate our Big Read cover story with Billie Eilish.
To celebrate the historic set, 1000 copies of a special limited edition magazine with Billie’s cover feature will be available. Stay tuned to NME.com and socials to find out how to get your hands on a copy very soon.
Speaking to NME for her third Big Read cover story, Billie said: “I owe it to everyone to put on a good Glastonbury headline set. It’s heart-warming to see how much people care about it and think that this is going to be the best weekend of their lives.”
She added: “I’m really crossing my fingers that it’s a good vibe out there. I’m hoping that the crowd is ready to have as much fun as I am ready to have, and not just be there to watch – I need energy coming back from the crowd to bounce off”.
Elsewhere in the interview, she discusses overcoming the fear that she would never produce a headline-worthy show, and the expectation female artists have for their sets.
“It’s so cool to be a young woman and headline festivals, because it’s so male-dominated,” she said. “I went through a rough patch in 2017 and 2018, feeling hopeless about the future of women in music. I would see these line-ups for festivals and it was all dudes. And it was all artists I liked, but it was just like, ‘When will women be involved?’”
